Redditors, what career path did you choose that you strongly advise against?
Ed ecco le risposte:
Hospitality. Not just because of current situation but the pay and working hours are shit. Hotels, tour agencies, restaurants… It all pays shit.
If you don’t want half your career to be construction crews blaming you for their fuck ups or engineers and architects telling you not to tell them how to do their job when you’re telling them they’re dimensions/math are wrong and you corrected it so they have the right numbers…
Don’t be a land surveyor…
Ryan Homes actually tried to blame me for them building a house 5 feet over the lots building restriction line because their crew couldn’t read a point we staked out have to be adjusted. The stake marking the point in the field had the corrected distance on it… 3 different cutsheets shower the corrected number… And those dipshits built a house off of that one god damn offset… To the square point of house, not even an offset to the physical corners.
Sorry for the rant, that was one job where I loved the math… Hated the clients.
Photography. At least don’t go to school for it.. if you want to be a photographer, learn online and then just get out there and do it. Get an internship early and learn there much more cost effective.
Law, unless you’re extremely well connected, or have family in the business, or like being someone’s fuck doll for a shot at any partnership opportunity worthwhile.
It’s not so much the career path; but the industry. Public Relations is so impactful, but 18-year-old me wanted to work in fashion and chased the “glamour” of it all. Realized there’s 0 money in fashion and I should’ve tried to land a corporate PR or Communications job or one at a nonprofit for more meaningful work. Also learned the hard way that PR pays crap at the beginning.
Lesson learned: Fashion is fun, but not for a job.
